Vintage Photo Wednesday: A Pair of Football Kicks

Vintage Photo Wednesday
Via the Smithsonian American Art Museum, here's a pair of outstanding vintage stop-motion photographs by Harold E. Edgerton. They both capture the moment when a player kicks a football on a tee, and I love the effect of the feet pushing in the football. Here's a black and white from 1934: And a nifty color one from 1938. I love the shiny gold pants almost as much as the shot of the football.
